        Wavedancer Low Isles Cruise
        Stop: 4 hours - Admission included
        Situated nine miles (15 kilometers) north-east of Port Douglas, Low Isles is a coral cay surrounded by 55 acres of reef in the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park. The sandy beach and clear, calm lagoon waters are ideal for swimming and snorkeling. Low Isles is well-known for its population of green turtles, keep an eye on the surface as they regularly pop up for air. Occasionally dugongs can be seen grazing on sea grass and large rays may glide by. During the cruise, a Marine Biologist will conduct an informative talk on the fish and corals and provide details on the activities available throughout the day. The 30-meter luxury sailing catamaran offers the excitement of big ship sailing combined with the ultimate in comfort. Relax in the luxurious air-conditioned lounge with fully licensed bar, or soak up the sun under the sails on the expansive deck. On arrival a shuttle will take you from the boat to the island, or you can dive straight in and swim to the beach! Join an organized snorkel tour led by a marine biologist, or take to the water independently and explore at your leisure. Snorkeling equipment is provided and the friendly crew are on hand to assist.You don't have to get wet to enjoy a day at Low Isles. You can join a glass bottom boat tour over the soft coral gardens that surround Low Isles. Your guide will point out giant clams, a variety of fish and corals, and of course be on the lookout for turtles. On land you may like to join a guided beach walk around the small island. Learn about the flora and fauna of the island along with the history of Low Isles as an important place of marine research. We recommend you book this reef trip on your first full available day. You then have the opportunity to be flexible and change your travel date if you wish. Your booking can be changed at no additional cost directly with the operator once you are in Cairns. Prebook and secure your booking, but relax in knowing you can make amendments at no charge.

        What an amazing day
        My husband and I and our 2 friends booked the Wave dancer trip in the uk before our trip to Australia, we were so glad we did. The day was amazing from start to finish. From the moment we boarded the catamaran we were given very thorough safety instructions and loads of information on marine life and snorkelling. When we arrived at the beautiful Low isles we were quickly shuttled across to the island and given first class equipment. The guided snorkelling trip was great and we felt very safe at all times. When we got back on the catamaran at lunchtime there was a fabulous buffet waiting for us comprising of king prawns, chicken, beef and an array of delicious salads followed by fresh fruit and later cheese and biscuits We couldn’t have asked for more, then on the return journey we were serenaded by this lovely man with a glass of bubbly to round off an amazing day, I didn’t get any of your names but all the crew were brilliant and super friendly. I would not hesitate to recommend this trip it was first class.

        Perfect Trip
        Awesome from start to finish! What feels like a short hour journey from the port to Low Isles. Staff briefing on safety was extremely thorough and filled us with confidence. All the equipment provided was like new and we had no issues other than sizing of one of our wetsuits (underestimated girth). A fantastic day all round with a great guided snorkel, beach walk and glass bottom boat. Shoutout to Glen the marine biologist for those. Capped off with a complimentary glass of bubbles on the way back to port.

        What a great day out on the water
        Love Love Loved it!!! The staff are so funny and friendly, the catamaran is lovely and we were blessed to have great weather. We have done many snorkelling trips around the world and the info session beforehand was the most comprehensive one we’ve seen. The glass bottom boat is fun and I went out on that three times. The young bloke that took us out - cant remember his name- he grew up at Cape Tribulation - was very knowledgeable and it’s evident he loves his job. The Buffett lunch was fantastic - to be honest I wasn’t expecting much - but the food was so fresh and tasty and really well presented and 10 points for the food handling and cleanliness. I actually Can’t fault this trip at all. Well done guys , you have a sensational business and be proud of your work and love of the sea.

        Just do it!
        I had already been on the Silversonic catamaran to the outer reefs and was bitten by the Great Barrier Reef curiosity bug so had to join this one, too! I am glad i did. We had a great trip out, the snorkelling was awesome, the Low Isles fascinating, the lunch satisfying and the crew approachable and friendly. Recommended!

        Disappointing
        This trip should never have gone ahead. It should have been cancelled with how rough the weather was. Majority of us missed out on snorkelling because of the rough conditions. We should’ve been given the option to change to another day. So disappointing.

        Snorkeling was amazing
        The snorkeling on the reef was amazing, the fish, huge clams and coral was simply stunning! The water was nice and warm even on a slightly overcast day.

        A beautiful day on board the Wavedancer
        We had such a beautiful day yesterday on the Wave dancer. The crew were amazing and incredibly friendly and attentive. The snorkeling was pretty good despite it being low tide. My kids saw 2 turtles and a sting ray amongst many different fish species. It was comforting to have two life guards on duty the whole time not only keeping you safe but advising on the best location to snorkel. Visiting the island adds another dimension to the day and makes for a very relaxing visit. Thank you very much everyone.

        Fantastic introduction to the reef and snorkelling!
        We had never been to the reef and it was amazing! Weather was perfect thankfully as I do get seasick. As a novice snorkeller I needed help with fins and snorkel. The staff were so helpful and patient. Everything was provided and was very well organised. Staff were professional and so friendly. Nothing too much trouble. Lovely fresh buffet lunch. Highly recommend this trip.

        Had a great time! Do the Wavedancer!
        We had beautiful calm weather. The staff were really hard-working and clear in their instruction. A beautiful experience all in. Lots of coral and fish and giant clams. Saw a reef shark but no turtle that day. For someone who wanted a great snorkelling experience but not travel too far, an hour from Port Douglas and you're in snorkel paradise. Water was warm with good visibility. We were all expected to wear the stinger suits. Equipment was well-maintained. We were serenaded back to Port Douglas. A great day well-spent! Do the Wavedancer!!!

        Lower Isles Snorkelling Port Douglas
        Everything is thought of to make the day a memorable one. The Island is a great getaway. The snorkeling experience off the beach is wonderous. The Crew on board the cruise ship and the Crew on the ground were absolutely wonderful. A shout out to Erica for the tour of the Island. A shout out for Shay for her amazing care as Life Guard and Snorkelling instructor. All crew on board including the original and authentic singer grey O. Thanks to all the team at Quick silver for making it a memorable day.

      Just wonderful service and we saw so much around the island.

      The group six was quite big but we knew that given the boat size.

      Lunch was magnificent and that complimentary glass of bubbles at the end was a nice touch.

      We saw turtles, reef sharks and so many other awesome sea life.

      Well done guys.

      This was a fabulous day out on a really lovely boat with a nice bunch of people, probably no more than 50, but it's a big boat so loads of space! We have done this type of tour before in various places but this was right up there with the very best. The day was as expected with excellent food, drink, snorkelling etc all provided. What made it so exceptional was the lovely crew, so friendly, fun, efficient and professional. As well as the expected activities we were given a talk and a short walking guided tour round one of the Low Isles by the on-board Marine Biologist. She was able to answer all our questions! What a great day, thoroughly recommended!
